Sheriff Danny Hickman announces the implementation of an automated answering service at the Boone County Sheriff’s Department. In an effort to improve our efficiency and effectiveness to the citizens of our county, we have implemented an automatic answering service here at the Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s Department receives several hundred telephone calls a day, not all of which are emergency calls or requests for service. In an effort to free our central dispatch up to deal with emergency calls and officer tracking, we are trying to help the public reach the proper division in a competent manner.
Our phone number is still 870-741-8404, while anyone calling for the Jail or inmate information should call 870-429-1406.
As with any other new technology, there are bugs that need working out and we ask the public’s patience with us while we strive to make our office more efficient and effective.
